San Pedro restaurant is located in a quiet and cosy Portugese Settlement area in Melaka. This restaurant was open in 1977. It's probably the very first restaurant selling fusion Portugese and Malay food in the area. Those who never been here may find it difficult to locate the place as it is not facing the sea where you would find... More

For dinner, we went to the Portuguese Settlement of Melaka. Firstly, the settlement is very much only a name of the place and don't expect much sightseeing here, although we managed to see a nice sunset from the seaside promenade of this place. Portuguese Settlement is more popularly known for the many stalls there selling seafood. We tried Stall No... More

Came here after reading reviews by TA. Wasn't disappointed at all. Ordered chilli crabs, grilled brinjal and asam prawns. All of which tasted really good... just like home cooked food. Recommend.

While looking for the restaurant, we end up at the at Portuguese Square, pestering by at least 5 to 8 stall along the sea. Feeling uncomfortable with that, we decided to stick to our plan find San Pedro. Driving out of the car park, we ask the car park attendant the location, nice uncle told us to park our car... More

The cuisine was great! Very fresh and delicious. The waiters are friendly. The location is outside the Portugese Settlement (Perkampungan Portugese), an area near the beach, with hawker stall. The building is not well maintained. Some paints on the ceilings are peeled off and like it were going to fall down.
